Quick hours walk round the forest. Turned up quite a lot of mushrooms, there has been quite a bit of rain in the last few days and I think were going to see a lot of fungi showing up.

The beech that these were growing on fell recently due to disease - leading to speculation about how soon after a beech dies do oysters appear. This one was about 2 years.
